Great song. What are the lyrics in Welsh? The Welsh language seems to have so many variations, and Google Translate can't be fully trusted to give a correct translation.

'Heol Fanog' - The theme for 'The Witch Podcast' by Gwenno. The podcast is available to listen to on BBC Radio 4.
“It was brilliant to work with Danny Robins for this track. We had great conversations on what the piece needed to be and I was really interested in trying to embody the spirit of what the ghosts in the story were trying to communicate, and being that there was talk of a Celtic burial site at the house in the Brecon Beacons it felt fitting to sing in Welsh with it being so closely linked to the Brittonic language which the Celts of Britain spoke, and that Welsh has evolved from. The lyrics are 'From where, from where. from where did you come from? Why are you calling me?' and I always viewed it as a two-way conversation between the spirits of Heol Fanog (the house) and the couple who lived there with their children.”

It's 1989, rural Wales, a lonely old farmhouse in the shadow of the imposing Brecon Beacons mountains. Young, pregnant Liz Rich and her artist husband Bill rent an isolated farmhouse in the Welsh countryside, with Bill's teenage son Laurence. They're hoping for a fresh start, but the house holds dark secrets, and the family's new life becomes a terrifying ordeal that will change them forever.
Their dream home has become a haunted nightmare - but what is real and what is in their minds?
Written and presented by Danny Robins, creator of The Battersea Poltergeist, Uncanny and West End hit 2:22 - A Ghost Story, The Witch Farm stars Joseph Fiennes (The Handmaid's Tale) and Alexandra Roach (No Offence), with original theme music by Mercury Prize-nominated Gwenno. This 8-part series interweaves a terrifying supernatural thriller set in the wild Welsh countryside with a fascinating modern-day investigation into the real-life mystery behind what has been called Britain's most haunted house.
